Proverbs 26:26 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
There now follow proverbs regarding the nirgân, the slanderer (vid., regarding the formation and import of this word at Proverbs 26:28):
20 Where the wood faileth, the fire goeth out;
And where no tale-bearer, discord cometh to silence.
Wood, as material for building or for burning, is called, with the plur. of its product, עצים. Since אפס is the absolute end of a thing, and thus expresses its no longer existing, so it was more appropriate to wood (Fleischer: consumtis lignis) than to the tale-bearer, of whom the proverb says the same thing as Proverbs 22:10 says of the mocker.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
whose hatred is covered by deceit or hatred is covered in secret
So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light.
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.
